--The following are a few things every resident should know to help us provide the safest roads during the winter season:

1. Plow trucks back up frequently; please stay back at least 100 feet

2. Reduce your speed as you approach an oncoming plow truck, they may cause white out conditions that could reduce visibility

3. Do Not let children play in snow piles near any roadway

4. Do Not park any vehicle on any township maintained road

5. Do Not plow, shovel, or blow snow into or across any roadway. Not only is this dangerous, but it’s the law.

6. Keep garbage cans back from the road if it snows on your collection day. The Township is not responsible for tipped, spilled or damaged containers within the roadway.

7. Vegetation and turf situated within the road right-of-way is always subject to damage. Structures and improvements are prohibited within rights of way and no liability is assumed for damage to same.

8. Mailboxes will be repaired or replaced in accordance to the Township mailbox policy.
